If you’re a true entrepreneur, you can’t survive having a normal job. If you’re not out there making it happen and running a business, you’re not an entrepreneur, you’re a person with entrepreneurial tendencies. Now that’s fine. As long as you’re happy that’s what matters.
But if you truly feel like you need to be an entrepreneur, you can’t be working for someone else.
